    Someone in the EXP website had that valve cover years ago, wonder if you just found that cover or swapped in the whole motor.......

    It's 2019 now (for now) and I see this chinese company makes what sounds like 1.6 Zetecs for dune buggys now! However the photos I find all show a 1.6 CVH instead lol

    Like this without the badging and painted black.

    If you visit the Wikipedia page on that Chinese car company it says they bought all the castings rights to the British CVH in 1999ish, on these valve covers you can see they cut-out the spot where the intake runners typically mount then patch some sheet metal in its place. Either they did that to every valve cover or they did that for their initial cast/press, it's hard to tell in the photos because all the ones I find are terrible lol
